The amendment to 314.2 will not have an adverse impact on jobs. The amendment merely modifies the time frame in which an ADR employer is required to file an injury report from 30 to 10 days and makes the ADR employer's time to file an injury report the same as what is statutorily required for non-ADR employers.
The addition of 314.8 will not have an adverse impact on jobs. The Board retains jurisdiction of all workers' compensation claims. The new section 314.8 merely acknowledges this fact and outlines the procedure for handling issues that are outside the ADR process which includes Board approval of a negotiated settlement or adjudication.
Please Note: The Board recommends using the latest version of Adobe Reader which is available as a free download from Adobe's web site.
